So, lots of folks I know have been tweetfaceplusblogging about the hilariously inaccurate summary of them offered by Google's new Ad Preferences thingy. So, I had a look at mine, and this is what I got:

The age is slightly off; they've confused strength training with bodybuilding; and I have lots of interests that don't appear in that list. But on the whole, that fails to be hilariously inaccurate. Bah. I'll have to get my Friday giggles by googling "goths up trees" or something.
